Proper kettlebell training delivers both resistance training and high intensity cardio vascular training in a quick, fat-blasting workout that gets results - fast! Rapidly growing in popularity amongst general fitness enthusiasts and athletes. It's great for beginners, soccer moms, weekend warriors, and anyone desiring better fitness, weight loss and strength. Used by the Russian military and Special Forces, the kettlebell (or girya) has been touted as the most effective, efficient piece of strength training equipment available. Proponents of kettlebell training suggest that it increases strength, power, speed, co-ordination as well as core stability. Where dumbbells have been more commonly used for isolation drills in traditional Western weight training, kettlebell drills have historically focused on working many muscle groups in unison and are more convenient for explosive movement patterns.
